We are industry leaders in all forms of automation and motion control; having extensive experience incorporating a full range of automation options into scenic elements. From proprietary automation control systems to purposed-designed winches, we can solve the simplest to the most complex of motion challenges. Our decades of experience, attention to detail and our extensive knowledge of the practical demands of automation in a wide range of production environments, allows PRG to provide motion control that is executed with precision, accuracy and repeatability in the safest and most effective manner possible. Designers, production managers, and producers trust PRG to provide precise control of scenic effects for Broadway and touring shows, Las Vegas spectaculars, corporate and trade shows, concert tours, theme park attractions, and events around the world
Create an Accurate Roadmap for Your Project with Precise and Detailed Computer Drawings
Executing the perfect production begins with accurately mapping out the details. In any place where a production will occur, there are multiple considerations that must be thought out well in advance of the show date. This can best be accomplished only after an accurate floor plan is created. CAD drawings are an essential roadmap for all stakeholders involved in putting together your event or production. These precise drawings can help signal obstructions and partitions, exits, ceiling heights, and virtually every other important spatial detail for the designers, planners, production partners, and guests.
Content Capture & Streaming

Expand your event’s reach by sharing your content with a broad global audience. Based on Sonic Foundry’s industry-leading Mediasite technology, PRG Webcasting lets you stream, capture, upload and manage your valuable meeting content. Webcast your content live over the Internet, or deliver it on-demand to any platform or device.

Help Attendees Find Their Way

Reinforce Your Branding - Bring Your Content to Life

When looking to incorporate interactive technologies into your event or production, turn to PRG for expert advice and guidance. Combining event technologies into one cohesive experience is a challenge uniquely suited to PRG, regardless of whether you're tracking projection or animation, movement of seats, movement of lights, or audio levels, or looking to do something completely new. We work closely with content creators and animators to make sure that what you see and hear throughout your venue blends with both the on-screen and physical elements that you are sitting in or walking through—and blurs the lines between fantasy and reality.

How to Get The Right Gear and People, in the Right Place, at the Right Time
Whether transporting personnel and materials, storage, or organizing travel, the logistics required in connection with an event are not to be underestimated. The larger the project or the greater the distance to the venue, the more critical it is to carefully plan, book, and manage material handling, transport, flights, and hotels. The loading, unloading and on-site storage of materials also needs to be organized. Logistics may also include space planning for the outdoor areas and the scheduling of delivery traffic.
There is No Substitute for Experience
Knowing how to effectively pack, manage, ship, and deliver materials while optimizing both delivery timing and costs comes from years of experience. PRG begins logistics planning at the beginning of each project - defining event production solutions that will deliver an exceptional event while keeping an eye on any potential logistics challenges. The result is reduced risks, timely and cost-effective event delivery, and successful events.
Logistics Knows no Boundaries
With offices on five continents, PRG manages logistics on a global scale and offers complete international solutions. Our global infrastructure covers Europe, North America, South America, Australia, and the Asia Pacific regions.

We've done everything from developing life safety plans to presenting project plans to city hall. We make sure all the t's are crossed and i's are dotted so that permitting is a smooth and stress-free experience.
Safe and Reliable Power and Data Networking Every Time
The critical backbone of any production is a safe, stable power and data network. Working on some of the largest projects worldwide, PRG has earned the trust of productions by providing its award-winning Series 400 Power Distribution System to handle the mission-critical data and power networking that these productions require. The Series 400 is the proven, reliable choice for even the most critical and complex applications that combines power, DMX, and Ethernet data through a single custom-designed trunk cable to reliably distribute both power and data around any facility – no matter how large - without failure.
A Great Tool for Brainstorming, Planning, or Pitching Creative Shows or Events
In many of our facilities, PRG provides dedicated studio space for clients to pre-visualize their lighting, scenic automation, and video in a virtual 3D environment in advance of selecting equipment or producing scenic elements. The primary reasons clients use pre-visualization are to visualize different looks or integrated movement in a virtual environment, to determine the best methods for reaching their design goals, to allow producers to pitch creative ideas to their clients, and to rough-in cue structure for the show in advance of arrival at the show venue.
Connect speakers with their audiences. Effortlessly.
The best presentations don’t just deliver information to a passive audience—they forge strong connections between speakers and meeting participants. PRG Presentation Management ensures that your speakers’ content reaches their audiences without a hitch, by providing a complete system for collecting, managing and distributing your meeting’s content.
PRG Presentation Management also includes an audience response system that engages attendees in real time, making them active participants.
Before the conference, your speakers upload their presentations, including audio and video files to a secure PRG Presents website, giving them the added security that the presentations will be on-site and ready to present when they arrive. They can upload any file type from any computer, whether PC or Mac.
When your speakers arrive in the breakout room, their presentation is loaded and ready to go, which eliminates technology surprises. They don’t have to waste valuable time futzing with computers or uploading content from a thumb drive. All they have to do is select their name from an onscreen menu when they’re ready to start their presentation.
The most dynamic presentations are also the most up to date. Our centralized system allows speakers to update their presentations to include new information before the meeting as well as on-site during the event. The server continually updates files and videos to each meeting room, ensuring that it always has the most current version.
The PRG Presentation Management system distributes all presentations to every breakout room’s computer. Even if there’s a last-minute room change or the venue loses network connectivity, speakers have the peace of mind knowing that they can still give their presentation. If more attendees want to attend a session than the breakout room can accommodate, our Overflow on Demand System can stream, within minutes, the audio and video content to a dedicated overflow room, any other open breakout room, or even digital signage.
Onsite, speakers can get personal assistance in the Speaker Ready Room from an experienced PRG staff skilled in Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote, and Prezi. We work with speakers to load and edit their presentations, help adjust or fix any problems, and instruct them in the menu system. While meeting rooms are in session, a PRG technician monitors them from the Speaker Ready Room. If there’s a problem, the speaker can send an alert and the technician can access the laptop remotely to solve the issue.
With PRG Presentation Management, you benefit not only from innovative technology but a PRG technical support team with experience in all aspects of presentations. Before your meeting, we communicate directly with speakers by email and our upload site. PRG technicians are on-call 24/7 to answer speaker questions. And during your meeting, we’re fully prepared to help with special speaker needs or requests.
Don’t wait until after the conference to find out what your attendees did or didn’t like. PRG Presents’ audience response system lets speakers engage participants and collect feedback to questions in real-time, letting you make changes on the fly. Audience members can even respond confidentially to issues and ideas.

Transform Anything into a Video Display Surface - for Events, Exhibits, and Installations

By using specialized software like PRG’s Mbox Designer software, combined with large format, ultra high resolution video projectors, a two- or three-dimensional object is spatially mapped and digital media is applied to the object so that it visually “wraps” or conforms to the object’s dimensions. We can combine the projected video with, or be triggered by, audio to create an immersive narrative.
